Thousands of supporters of Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi celebrate in front of the Egyptian high court in Cairo on November 22, 2012, after Morsi assumed sweeping powers, putting him on a collision course with the judiciary and raising questions about the country's democratic future. The move, just a day after Morsi took diplomatic centre stage in brokering a ceasefire between Israel and Gaza's Islamist Hamas rulers, earnt him the same derisive monicker of 'new phararoh' levelled at veteran strongman Hosni Mubarak before his ouster in a popular uprising last year.
